ATI will have multi-GPU technology and a new motherboard chipset on show at Computex this year, the INQ has discovered.

Our secret moles in Canada, who have been posing as mounties whilst extracting information from our top-secret sources about the new releases in Taiwan.

And, from the Bosnian wilds, our Fudo confirmed that the company plans to reveal this marchitecture at Computex, as many of ATI's motherboard partners will present their design wins there.

We suspect that the motherboard will feature an updated version of the RS200 chipset, possibly featuring a faster graphics core.

We do know that ATI's Multi-GPU uses two different modes of rendering an image; first one is chess-board tile rendering while second one is AFR (Alternate Frame Rendering).

We can also confirm that you will be able to use X800 and X850 PCIe cards that you acquired before, in ATI's new board, though you may have to utter a prayer or two.

More details as our spies tell us aboot them. µ
